Home Sweet Home

 I am so glad that you're here! It's Saturday and I'm enjoying an easy at home day. Just ate some of those grilled burgers that I had a hankering for yesterday, and spent a bit of time playing with Home Sweet Home (from SSS.)

No dies, just scissors. Plus stamps paper and ink. It felt good to create simply today and using these cute Waffle Craft papers made it extra nice. 

I love the sentiment on this one, it made me choke up a bit. It's been awhile since I've seen family and I do really miss getting out to do the things we used to do.  

I thought the lineup of rainbow stripes worked well for the layout at Freshly Made Sketches

Keeping with the colors in the paper, I stamped the houses over it and colored with Copics in the same shades. One of the great things about Waffle Flower papers is that their packs are 5.5. x 8.5 so you get two cards from each sheet. At 80 lbs the paper is able to stand up well for coloring, heating, or embossing. I added clear Nuvo drops to the hearts for shine.

For the second card, I used a blade to cut out the rectangle, using the printed frame of the paper to cover the pattern with the clouds and birds. Sending hugs Special Delivery is a nice thought for any time of year. Nuvo drops for the plane, a bit of shimmer on the sign, and a few enamel dots for embellishment. That is all.

I will also enter the SSS Challenge to Layer it Up. Hope you enjoy whatever the day brings you!
